Nailor and Pendleton Open Law Office



“Tiffany interned with me for a short period of time when I was in private practice. We developed a great working relationship and maintained communication with each other. During our time working together for the City of Vicksburg, our friendship became stronger,” said Attorney Nailor. “We would discuss legal matters as she is very astute.”

“Kim and I discovered early on that we work well together,” said Attorney Pendleton. “It’s great to have someone to bounce ideas, legal theories and arguments off of; it’s almost necessary in this field. We also have the same morals and values, which is important.”

Nailor, who is the sister of Judge Toni Walker Terrett and J’Nitra Walker Brown grew up in Vicksburg. “We grew up in the rural part of the county where we only had three families neighboring us. Every summer, my mother took us to the Warren County Library where we volunteered to work with my aunt Lottie Walker (former children’s librarian).”

Nailor went on to graduate Summa Cum Laude from Alcorn State University in 2003 and passed the bar in February 2006. “Fun Fact: I found out I was pregnant with my son, Cameron, while taking the 2006 bar exam,” Nailor continued, “When I became barred to practice law on May 2, 2006, I was six months and very obviously pregnant. I went into private practice from May 2, 2006.” From there Nailor worked in private practice, with the Department of Human Services and as the Attorney for the City of Vicksburg.

Tiffany Pendleton grew up in Vicksburg, the daughter of Charles and Betty Pendleton. “I have a younger sister and brother – they are the driving force for me,” explained Pendleton. “My family has shaped me into the woman I am today. My main goal is to make them proud. So that means in any career, or at any job I do, I do it by standing in honesty, integrity, and diligence.”

Also a graduate of Vicksburg High School, Pendleton said, “Since high school, I knew I wanted to be an attorney, but I took a year off after graduating from MSU,” where she recieved her Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy. “I worked for my parents that year while studying for the LSAT. I took the LSAT and was accepted into Mississippi College School of Law where I graduated cum laude in 2018.” Pendleton passed the bar in 2018.

Pendleton went on to work as a Staff Attorney for Judge Tomika Irvin, at a law firm in Jackson and then as the Chief of Staff for Mayor George Flaggs.

Regarding the type of law she will be practicing, Pendleton said, “I specialize in criminal defense. I am committed to safeguarding the rights and freedoms of my clients. From minor misdemeanors to complex felony charges, I approach each matter with thorough investigation, strategic planning, and zealous advocacy. I understand the profound impact that criminal accusations can have on one’s life, reputation, and future prospects. So, my priority is not only to secure favorable outcomes but also to ensure that every individual receives fair treatment under the law,” explained Pendleton.
